Stampin' Up! Floral Phrases - 80th Birthday!

Hello, I'm sharing a very special card with you today; its one I made for my Aunts 80th Birthday at the end of May!

I have been using Floral Phrases rather a lot recently whilst working on samples for my launch party on 2nd June.

I decided to use Pacific Point as it is a colour I knew my Aunt would love.

Here is the card - I struggled for some time with the measurements but got there in the end!

Here is the inside of the card ... I had to put an 80 on this card somewhere but not on the front!

Here is the card from the back ...

Of course I decorated the envelope to match,  whilst making my first envelope (on the right), I developed complete brain fog!  I stamped it using Island Indigo, why I have no idea.  The envelope sat on my desk for two days - I knew there was something not quite right with it but could not put my finger on what.  Thankfully, I realised my mistake before it was too late - phew!

I rustled up a tiny gift box and even managed to use one of my earlier attempts at this card to decorate the box - hate to waste anything!

I am pleased to day that my Aunt was thrilled with her card and gift - we enjoyed a scrummy afternoon tea and I had a good catch up with all my family.  

I was asked to make the invitations to the party - I used a retired set called A Nice Cuppa that featured tea cups, unfortunately I forgot to take a photo.  My cousins organised a cake ...



I can't believe my Aunt is 80 - she is amazing, so full of joie de vivre!




Despite the heat, the afternoon carried on into the evening with lots of cocktails and the odd game of pool!
